We spent a long night of brainstorming, around a few pints, to create a beer suitable to big our good friends adieu. We found that Reprieve Schwarzbier is the Artisan lager for the job. This black beer is a Bohemian Pilsner gone dark. German malts, noble hops, and lager yeast combine for our take on this traditional beer style. Though they may be moving on, we wont let the lights go dark.

22 oz. bottle, $7 at Binnys. Got this in October, and it got stacked up while re-painting the beer cellar. Pours a big black body under a light brown head, just a tad lighter than a stout. Has a more stouty smell than the few other black lagers Ive had. Much more roasty malt. Has some alcohol in the nose, too. Taste has the roasty roughness of a stout at first, but settles down to let some dry lager character in. Once you get used to the dark roast, it does suggest a heartier Dortmunder or altbier. Definite German noble hops making a bit of peppery spice. Light texture on the tongue, yet a bit heavy in the nose. An interesting combination.

I believe Pawola22 sent me this bottle. Dark brown with an off-white head. The aroma is full of roasted malt, chocolate, milk and cocoa. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of chocolate and powdered cocoa character as well as some roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

My first ever Schwarzbier. Poured from bomber into Founders snifter. A: Pours very dark, almost like stout. 1.5 finger dirty pearl head leaving a nice lace as it dissipates. S: Big barley and malts. Smells like a traditional pilsner. So interesting. T: Traditional barley with a nice malt backbone. Some hops on the backend as well. M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Filmy mouth feel with a great hop lingering taste. O: This was a very strange beer. I feel like it showed several qualities of a few beers, but in the end it was its own. I enjoyed the taste, but I dont have anything to compare it to. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-19-2011
